It doesn't look like any mark I could find in the book or in the gallery. It seems to say Mapua, with the P going down to meet between the N and the Z. A very nice plate, with a beautiful glaze:

Whoever made it knew what they were doing Smile
I made an instant connection with the few pieces of Mahana Ware that I've seen, especially regarding the clay.

I jumped to a conclusion, without any support or reference.
Sorry about that. ...

The marks certainly look the same, the only difference being the pentagon around the letters.
